Chancellor Ulmer goes to Gulf region for meetings, testimony
by Kathleen McCoy |
Chancellor Ulmer toured Louisiana and heard testimony from those involved in the oil spill as part of the first meeting of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling last week. The seven Commissioners visited response and control centers in Louisiana, Alabama and Florida; met with local government and business leaders; talked with spill clean-up workers; and listened to those impacted by the spill and involved in the clean-up and response. The Commission, appointed by President Obama to identify the root causes of the Gulf spill and to develop recommendations to guard against future spills, is expected to deliver its report within six months.
